This was my first Rachel Robinson book and it won’t be my last
I loved Luke and Arra’s story. It was full of ups and downs and characters you want to stab with a rusty spoon.
You won’t regret reading Legacy

ARC gifted by author in exchange for an honest review.

Where do I begin? I've been not so patiently waiting for this book and I promise it didn't disappoint. This book can be read as a stand alone BUT you are doing yourself a HUGE disservice if you haven't visited Maverick and Liam's books before you read this one. Maverick is from Rachel Robinson's book titled Crazy Good and Liam is from the Consolation and Conviction duet by Corinne Michaels. The characters in this book are Maverick's son Luke

I love when two worlds collide and the Crazy Good series definitely collided with the Salvation Series in the best way!

Aarabelle Dempsey is a strong confident, independent woman that girls can look up. She’s my spirit person. She’s a go getter and someone who goes after what they want until they reach their goals. Luke knows the military life just like Aarabelle and he has his own goals. Both are part of a legacy and together they will maneuver their chemistry while following the military rules
Steph's Romance Book Talk
4.5 Stars / 4 Steam Fans

I suggest reading the Salvation Series by Corinne Michaels before reading books in the Society, but it is not a requirement.

Key Points for this story in the Salvation Society Collection:
- Contemporary & Romantic Suspense
- Finding that love worth fighting for.
- Crazy Good Series connection is Maverick and Windsor from Crazy Good
- Salvation Series connection is Liam and Natalie from Consolation Duet

The heroine of this story is the first female Navy SEAL, and with that comes a list of rules, one of which is no fraternising with fellow SEALs. Aarabelle Dempsey has worked too hard to earn her place to risk it for anyone...until she gets to know fellow SEAL, Luke Hart, a little better. Their families have known each other for years, but they're only acquaintances at the beginning. Will they be willing to risk everything to have each other? I enjoyed this romance a lot :D ...more

I really enjoyed this. This is a double crossover from (obviously) the Salvation series, but also from Crazy Good, a book I read earlier this year and REALLY enjoyed. The relationship between Aarrabelle and Luke shouldn't have been and they went through a whole darn lot to make it happen. The journey was worth it though and I really hope this isn't the last we see from the kids of Crazy Good. Thank you to Candi Kane PR and the author for the early copy. I volunteered to leave an unbiased review. ...more

Legacy by Rachel Robinson wasn’t my first read by this author, but I can safely say it was her best work to date! Her exceptional writing style had me hooked and heavily invested in the narrative between the main characters right from the start.

The female heroine Arabelle Dempsey is Natalie and Liam's daughter from Corinne Michaels Consolation and Conviction duet. She is a determined, kick-ass-take-no-prisoners type of person who is on her way to becoming the Navy’s first female Navy Seal. Luke

We all know that two SEALs cannot be together, fraternizing rules and all that. But when teammates Aarabelle and Luke meet, the attraction is incendiary. The forbidden may not stay hidden for long, jeopardizing two careers, but what's more important? Will they choose love over duty? Love over the rules?

I knew the first time I read Crazy Good that Rachel Robinson's SEALs were something special. With this new crossover, she's just proved why Luk

First off, let me start by saying I haven't read Ms. Robinson before THIS book, Legacy. I DO have her Crazy Good series on my TBR (along with a few others) and HOLY CRAP ON A CRACKER, WHY I haven't read them is a complete mystery to me! I will also say that I will remedy that ASAP, because I NEED to read more from this author!!!

I LOVED every single thing about this one! Luke Hart and Aarabelle Dempsey have become one of my TOP FAVE couples, EVER!!! I actually wasn't sure I would even LIKE a fema

Aarabelle Dempsey has always known what she wanted to do...become a Navy SEAL and nothing was going to get in her way. She had SEAL in her blood from her biological father and the man she called Dad. When she meets Luke Hart, there's instant chemistry. But... there are so many rules in place to protect Aarabelle as the only female SEAL. Their relationship is forbidden not only because of the non-fraternization rules but also because Aara is an officer. What Aara doesn't know is that Luke is look ...more

Wow, just wow...this story was so remarkable. This forbidden romance not only made me cry on several occasions (which is a huge feat because I don’t cry!) it also had drama, so much sexiness and an overall amazing love story. I couldn’t get enough of Aarabelle with her perseverance, dedication, and strength. Even when she was heartbroken she didn’t let things get the best of her. She proved to everyone she deserved to be not only a SEAL but the first female SEAL.
Luke was the typical playboy wit

Aarabelle isn’t about to let the fact that she would be the first female Navy SEAL stop her from following in her father’s footsteps and carrying on the family tradition. She is fierce, fiery and not about to let anyone or anything stand in her way and that includes her public past.

Luke is also carrying on the family tradition of becoming a SEAL and he is well aware of his popularity with the opposite sex. When Aarabelle becomes part of his team he is asked by his father to help make the transit

I greatly enjoyed this one! These characters were amazing and I even loved the supporting characters.
In a typical Navy Seal story, man saves woman after she’s been in some sort of danger. Not this one - Aarabella is her own hero! She doesn’t need a man to save her. And luckily, her man learns this pretty quickly.

Aarabella has trained her whole life to become a Navy Seal... and now she is one. In fact, she’s the first ever female to become one. And she seems to already be accepted by several of

4.5 stars. This is the first book by Rachel Robison and really enjoyed it. Arabelle has always known what she wanted— to be a Navy SEAL like her father. She knows that it won’t be easy since she is the first female to get this opportunity. Luke Hart is also a SEAL and just like Arabelle, his father is also a SEAL, so he understands the pressure. This was a great story of Arabelle working for what she always wanted and Luke learning that his bachelor ways were not meant to last. This is not an ea ...more

Wage a fierce war and create a legacy of your own choosing

I don't think I love a couple more of Corinne Michaels than Natalie and Liam Dempsey. So getting Aarabelle's story was so perfect.

I love that while this is a love story, it's also about being strong on your own. As a female to pave a way in SEAL history was a great thing to read. The strength it took for her to be pinned, she proved she belonged above all measures. Luke was a legacy on his own, but I think his journey was about finding t

Aarabelle is going through the process of turning her life around. She reveals to the reader that it’s not only men who serve our country – thank you for your service. Hers is a job that shows there’s no favor based on gender. Luke shows how much tougher it is for women to be accepted in what used to be a men’s only world.

The author did a great job of building the military world around Aarabelle and Luke first before showing the personal side of these two characters. She knew what to give us wi

Gah! Where to begin?? Holy Sh!t Aara is a total BADA$$❣️ She’s smart, compassionate & a total BA...and Luke is her exact counterpart! Holy hot alpha bada$$! They complete each other:)

I know Corinne said she could never make Aaron a redeemable character but Rachel absolutely did! I absolutely choked when Aara & he spoke @ Maytons😢
He helped her be the heroine in her own Legacy:)

This is the first time I read a book by this author and ooo my lanta I was not disappointed at all! I want more to be honestly! I went on this crazy roller coaster and did not want to get off of it. I loved the characters and their friends and family. The connect they have with each other and others was written so well it was like watching a movie instead of reading.

Before I read Legacy, my expectations were very high. Rachel has been preparing her readers that Legacy was going to revisit characters in the Crazy Good world, a previous (masterful) work of hers.
As I read Legacy, not only were all of my expectations met, but they were surpassed as I got transported back into the bittersweet world.
Legacy was hard to finish only because I didn’t want to leave Aarabelle and Luke (and by extension, Windsor and Maverick!)
It’s a balancing act to be able to create

The second set of releases for The Salvation Series are here and let me tell you, I loved Legacy by Rachel Robinson. This is Aarabelle’s story from The Consolation duet. I was both excited and scared to read this one. I have loved Aarabelle from the start and all the snippets we have had of her through the years, but Rachel Robinson gave us a story worth her legacy.

Oh wow this was my first read from this Author and what an introduction. I was gripped from page 1 and completely enraptured. Rachel wrote a brilliant storyline filled with emotion, steam, friendship.

I really did like the spin Rachel put on this. She made Aarabelle such a strong, feisty, kicka** woman. She has fought hard for everything she has and is working hard for her new goal, to be the first female Seal! Shes passed all the tests and made the Team but she had no idea the real test would be

Rachel Robinson is a new author to me but when I learned Arabelle would be getting her own story, I knew this book was one I needed to read.

Arabelle has decided to follow in the footsteps of her dad, Liam. Being a SEAL is embedded in her soul. Both her birth father and Liam served. It's all she has wanted but being the first female SEAL comes with its own set of problems. There are rules set in order that become difficult to obey when she meets Luke.

Legacy is such an awesome story of #GIRLPOWER that I'm ready to read it again.  Aarabelle is a bada**  female who is training to be the first female SEAL, and she's not going to let anyone stand in her way because it's in her blood. However, she didn't plan on meeting Luke, and they have some lethal chemistry.  Luke also comes from a SEAL, so it's in his blood as well, but he couldn't stay away from Aarabelle to save his life.  There's just one huge problem, there's 0 tolerance for fraternizatio ...more

Wow! Rachel never lets me down when it comes to her stories. Now combine her world with Corrine Michaels'....lets just say I was blown away. I don't think I've ever read a heroine like Rachel has portrayed here. Strong. Independent. Take no sh*t from anyone. Araabelle is determined to make it on her own without the help of her father and receiving any special treatment. And boy does she prove everyone wrong in their assumptions about her. I loved Luk

I love Rachel Robinson and finding out this book was a spin off of Crazy Good I ordered it immediately. Overall I loved the book. It was the great mix of banter, chemistry, drama and love. I just found that it was also a little bit choppy and hard to follow. I couldn’t always tell how much time had passed between events and the female character seemed to do 180s really

First read for Rachel Robinson- I am a fan and will be reading more of her work.
That said this book is Aarabelle's story Liam and Natalie's daughter and I love love love her.
She is strong, cool, fiesty and her daddy's daughter for sure.
As I read the first chapter all I could think about was GI Jane the movie with Demi Moore. But this book is so much more than just her desire to be a Navy Seal. She meets Luke, not remembering much of meeting him when they were kids. But Luke remembers her. I love
